The Heart's Pursuit by Robin Lee Hatcher

Goodreads | Amazon
A jilted bride desperate to save her family from ruin.
A bounty hunter seeking vengeance for a ravaged past.
An arduous trek toward justice – or redemption.

Silver Matlock and Jared Newman know traveling together is a bad idea. Bad for Silver's already tarnished reputation in her small Colorado town. Bad for bounty hunter Jared's secret, single-minded mission for revenge. But Silver is determined to track down the rogue who left her at the altar and stole the last remnant of her father's fortune. And Jared's in a hurry to hunt down the murderer who destroyed his family – even if Silver is too distractingly beautiful for comfort.

The pair takes off over mountain and desert, past bleak homesteads and raw mining towns, hot on the trail of the two villains who took what wasn't theirs to take. Soon supplies dwindle, secrets emerge, and suspicion leave Silver and Jared at odds when they need each other most. To confront an enemy deadlier than desert rattlesnakes and rocky cliffs, Silver and Jared must learn to forgive and trust and face the question they haven't dared voice: What happens next?

What a delightful, fast-paced, adventuresome treat. As Silver and Jared follow the twists and turns of their relentless pursuit, Robin Lee Hatcher’s The Heart’s Pursuit beautifully weaves together suspense, intrigue and romance against the backdrop of the nineteenth-century Wild West. Her storytelling entertains with whimsy and nostalgia, while provoking thoughts of trust, forgiveness, redemption. I definitely recommend The Heart’s Pursuit and plan to read more from Robin Lee Hatcher in the near future.
